I am beginning to see a message…
Or could it actually be a warning?
Every book I have been reading recently has a chapter on fear.
My Facebook feed is full of scrolling meme’s on trusting God and not being afraid.
I travel to my home church and the sermon is the first in a series on fear.
I sit and read devotions… and they are touching on not being afraid.
I am clearing my emails out and I get topics on fear. I like this reminder the best:
Fall on your face before Him.
Earnestly seek Him.
Ask for His peace.
Rest in His presence.
My bible reading has been bringing scriptures, randomly, that talk about….
You guessed it… fear!!
What I find the most interesting is I suffer from fear. At times greatly to where I would rather not go somewhere out of fear of actually going. Or I stay in a current situation because I am afraid of the unknown other side…
This last year I started forcing myself into those places.
I signed up for several classes where I had to show up in order to pass…
My fear of failure overtook my fear of attending these places….
It was a massive battle. Total bloodshed!
Just kidding. I survived. And I didn’t even throw up in my purse. I actually made some cool friends!
But I am getting ready to embark on my next adventure. One that will touch on my biggest fear’s yet and I am determined not to cave in this area… and here is what I see….
God is sending me all the back up I need in the form of reinforcements! People that don’t even know it are encouraging me to take that next step and loving on me… and I don’t even know them personally!
That’s what you do for other’s when you speak up and encourage someone publicly… You allow God to use it for not just the intended person… but all the others going through the same thing!
Love on people! Encourage them to strive for better! Share Jesus with them. And be vocal on what God is doing through you and in you! Your past and present are the best forms of witnessing on this earth! He gave them to you… for such a time as this!!!
God’s peace literally will give you rest!
